Fire crews rescued an elderly woman who became trapped behind a door in her Highbridge home on Wednesday evening (October 31st).

Burnham-On-Sea fire crews were called to Southwell Crescent at 6.15pm after reports that the pensioner was stuck behind a bedroom door.

"Crews gained access by removing the door's hinges with a saw," a fire spokesman told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
